Get on your bike and support the proposed Liffey Cycleway! On Sunday April 2nd the Dublin Cycling Campaign is hosting a family-friendly, social cycle in support of the Liffey Cycleway. The cycle will begin at 11am at the Wellington Monument in the Phoenix Park and will follow the proposed route of the Liffey Cycleway along the North Quays as far as the Point Village.
Dublin Cycling Campaign meets regularly with the Dublin City Council to improve cycling conditions in our fair city. We are currently in the process of identifying specific important improvements and low-hanging fruit for the city engineers to consider. We cannot guarantee these will be addressed, but please help us in identifying specific locations that they can focus on.
#Allocate4Cycling - ending the silence from the minister of transport
This Friday 16th December is the final date for submissions on the National Transport Authority’s (NTA) proposals for a possible 2way cycle and walking route on Dublin’s south coast, all the way from Irishtown to Seapoint. It is a critical part of the originally proposed but yet to be fully realised Sutton to Sandycove coastal route, and if it happens it will be a wonderful addition to the few great Dublin cycling/walking routes.
Great News for Cycling and Dublin City
Dublin City Council with the support of Dublin Cycling Campaign made a bid to host the prestigious Velo City 2019 conference, the largest cycle related conference in the world! And the great news, is we have been successful, and managed to beat off the challenge of Helsinki to win this important conference for the city. It will be held in the National Conference Centre in June 2019.

Dublin Cyling Campaign are disappointed in the latest option proposed by Dublin City Council for the potentially iconic ‘Liffey Cycle Route’. This latest option proposes to take the route away from the Quays between Church Street and Heuston, so can no longer be accurately titled the ‘Liffey Cycle Route. Read below why Dublin Cycling Campaign oppose this latest proposed solution
